A guide to the Ley-Line Anomaly current event added with June 28 patch.
If you have completed the previous episodes, you should have gotten a mail from Ela Makkay, talking to her will give you the Ley Line Researched achievement and a Ley-Infused Lodestone.
Double Clicking on the Ley-Infused Lodestone will tell you on which map the next event will be (Gendarran Fields –> Timberline Falls –> Iron Marches)
You can buy more Ley-Infused Lodestone from her in exchange for Pile of Putrid Essence, Corrupted Lodestone, Crystal Lodestone, Destroyer Lodestone, and Mordrem Lodestone at a 1:1 ratio.
This event has a 2 hr respawn time and occurs 20 minutes past the hour. It will rotate maps so it will occur in the same map every 6 hrs. For EST it is every even hour, for PST it is every odd hour. For UTC it is every even hour.
After the timer, a big Legendary Ley-Line Anomaly will spawn in one of the three maps indicated by your Ley-Infused Lodestone. It will star running with a breakbar. Until you break that breakbar, it is invulnerable and will not stop.
Coalescences will spawn elsewhere in the map along the path that the Ley-Line Anomaly will run. They appear as crossed swords on the map and must be killed before the Legendary Ley-Line Anomaly reaches it if you want that achievement.
Once you break that breakbar, it will stop and anomaly fragments will spawn around it. Stop them from reaching and powering up the legendary anomaly by killing them. You have a minute of this and then the Anomaly becomes vulnerable, allowing you to damage 25% of his HP before the Anomaly becomes invulnerable again and start running. Repeat this 4 times to kill it.
This event rewards 1 Mystic Coins and some other loots (rare, junk that sells for 50s) once per day, so it is worth doing them daily if you need the Mystic Coins.
I am being told that there are multiple spawn locations & paths , so these spawn locations/paths may not be the same for your map.
Ley Line Researched – 1 AP, 5000 Karma
Anomaly Sighted – 1 AP
Granted automatically when you do the Ley-Line Anomaly event.
Dispersed Anomaly – 25 AP
Basically don’t let the Ley-Line Anomaly absorb any of the coalescences when you have broken its breakbar. The coalescence spawn elsewhere in the map and you just need a group that find them and kill them before the Legendary Anomaly reaches it to get the achievement. They appear as crossed swords icon on the map.
Anomalous Results – 10 AP, 500 Luck
Disperse 10 Ley-Line Anomalies (i.e. do the event 10 times)
Anomalies of the World – 5 AP, 3 Teleport to Friend
Do the anomaly event in all 3 zones.
They have added 6 new achievements for some old events at Blazeridge Steppes and new events in Mount Maelstrom and Snowden Drifts. You cannot advance on achievements for both Consortium and Priority at the same time if they are at the same location since you now get a buff declaring which supporter you are.
Flinnz’s Retirement – 3 AP, 25 silver
Keadin’s Study – 3 AP, 2500 karma
Garen’s Defense – 3 AP, 2500 karma
Loonaloo’s Paycheck – 3 AP, 25 silver
Shana’s Ambition – 3 AP, 25 Silver
Fiona’s Stockpile – 3 AP, 2500 Karma
